Topic: CONNECTING TO THE MIRACLE-WORKING POWER OF GOD (4)
Text: Jeremiah 32:17; Luke 1:37; 18:27; Genesis 1:1–3.
Ministering: Dr. Daniel Olukoya (G.O. MFM Worldwide)
We have been reading from Jeremiah 32:17, which says: “Ah Lord GOD! behold, thou hast made the heaven and the earth by thy great power and stretched out arm, and there is nothing too hard for thee:”
Also, Luke 1:37, which says, “For with God nothing shall be impossible.”
Let that sink into your spirit man.
Luke 18:27 (KJV): “And he said, The things which are impossible with men are possible with God.”
God is a spirit. God fights in the spirit realm and also in the physical realm. But it is the spiritual that determines the physical. So if God is fighting for you in the spiritual realm, it does not matter who is against you in the physical realm. No matter how small you are, they will fall and prostrate before you because God is a spirit, and God is the Holy One of Israel.
He is the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. He worked miracles for Abraham. He worked miracles for Isaac. He worked miracles for Jacob because He is the God of signs and wonders. The God of good dreams and angelic visitation, the God who makes the impossible possible.
A man went to a hospital in Europe. He was very sick when he was flown there. When he got there, he was told that he had cancer and that some surgeries had to be done on him. They opened him up and found out that the cancer had totally taken over his organs, so they just sewed him up and told him that he had just six months to live, so he should go back to his country and put his house in order.
🔥 I am praying for anybody here: any power issuing a death sentence against you, the death sentence shall die! in the name of Jesus.
He was very unhappy, and he came back to Nigeria. He was not given any drugs because, according to the doctors, there was nothing they could do. The last daughter is a member of MFM. We had a programme, and she dragged her father here, and the man was sitting by her side.
There was a word of knowledge that said, “There is somebody here. The enemy says you are dying, but God said I should tell you that you shall not die but live to declare the works of God”. The daughter said, “Daddy, they are talking about you”. He said, “No, it cannot be me. They did not mention my name”. That was the first time he came here. One month passed. Two months. Three. Four.
Six. Seven. Eleven. One year. And he was getting better and looking better. Two years later, he was still alive. He then went back to Europe, this time on vacation. He then decided to pay the doctor who told him to prepare for death a visit. When he appeared in the doctor’s office and he saw him, he fainted. He said, “What? You are supposed to be dead”. But what they had forgotten is that after all voices have spoken—the doctors, consultants, agents, and engineers, there is still an overruling voice that rules over all voices. And that voice is the voice of the living God.
🔥 I am praying that that voice will speak for you this morning, in the name of Jesus.
Do you know that the enemies may have been walking and running around for years? One word from the Lord will stop all their activities. Do you know that your enemies may have been boasting for years? One word from the Lord will scatter them. The Lord created the dry land.
Read the book of Genesis. The Lord said the dry land should come out of the waters. In His anger, He covered the dry land with water. He then commanded the sea to take over in the days of Noah. In the days of Moses, He told the sea to become dry land so that His people could walk through. That is the power and ability of the God whom we serve. A wonder working power.
One day, a man was driving on the expressway. And right at the front of the express, there was a woman standing in the middle of the road with wounds all over her. So this man stopped and went to the woman. The woman explained that there was an accident not far from where she was standing. She told him that he did not see it because the vehicle had already entered the ditch. She said, “Inside that ditch, there is a baby. Can you go and rescue that child?” The man asked “Where?”?
She replied that it was about one kilometre from where they were. He then got back into the car and found the vehicle at the exact spot in the ditch. He got in, and at the back of that vehicle, he saw a baby. He took the baby out, went back to look for the woman who spoke with him, and could not find her again. So the Lord, who had an agenda for the baby, delivered the baby. That is the power of our God. I am telling you about the possibility and power of our God.
This happened in Kenya. This little girl was helping her parents sell fruits like mangoes and oranges after school because the family was very poor. She was selling somewhere around the park in Nairobi, Kenya. One day, she was kidnapped by three men with a bandage on her mouth. She was screaming, so they placed her on the ground to go fetch the car to take her away, with one man standing guard. But this girl had come from a Christian home, and we do not even know what kind of prayers her parents were praying for her.
So as this girl was still struggling and screaming with the bandage over her mouth, perhaps a lion heard it and thought that a cub was in trouble. Then the lion came out and was walking towards them. When this man standing guard saw the lion coming, nobody taught him what to do. He fled. As he fled, he kept saying, “Ahn Ahn, this girl must have bad luck o. We kidnapped her, and now a lion will eat her up”. But when the lion arrived where the girl was, he just went straight to her and laid down quietly by her side. The lion did not leave.
When those who went to bring the car came and saw the girl and the lion, they drove off. So when they had gone, the lion quietly stood up and went back into the forest. That can only be the power of our God.
God has sent fire from heaven before. He has sent fire from heaven before. He has brought manna from heaven before. He has brought water out of the rock. He has formed snakes out of wood.
From darkness, He has brought light, and He has made man out of dust. He is able to turn any sorrow into rejoicing. He is able to turn any backwardness into an appointment, turn limitation into progress, and turn adversity into victory. Can you raise your right hand and shout:
🔥 I connect my life to the wonder-working power of God, by the power in the blood of Jesus! (Shout this three hot times).
God buried Korah, Dathan, and Abiram alive. God poured fire on Elijah’s altar. He was the One who withered the hand of the King that was pointing to the prophet. He was the One who turned King Nebuchadnezzar into a lunatic. He was the One who sank the wall of Jericho and then flew Elijah out in chariots of fire. He was the One who took those three Hebrew boys out of the fire. He was the One who replaced the eyes of that blind man by putting them in clay and putting them back in his eyes.
🔥 I am praying for somebody here today: the God of signs and wonders shall visit you today! in the name of Jesus.
A couple got married, and people brought a lot of presents for them that day. So after their honeymoon, they started going through the presents. They eventually found a big cake with a small note inside a big container wrapped in wrapping paper. Those who brought the present did not write their name on it. The note said “Eat this cake and block your womb”. What kind of gift and wickedness is this? They were afraid. Of course, they destroyed the cake. They were not coming to MFM. For years and years, they were looking for the fruit of the womb.
It was when they got to MFM and to one of our programmes like this that a word of knowledge said “There is somebody who has been fed unconsciously, and that food is blocking her way”. Immediately after the prayer meeting, the lady felt like going to the toilet. When she went to the toilet, she was surprised. What came out was exactly that cake, which she did not eat but which she saw. That month, she got pregnant. That is the ability of our God. There is no way a normal person will be able to connect the two, but God, who is a Spirit, connected it.
🔥 I am praying for somebody here today that the mighty power of God will work in your favour! in the name of Jesus.
How does God do miracles? Genesis 1:1–3 tells us. It says:
Genesis 1:1–3 (KJV): “In the beginning, God created the heaven and the earth. And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters. And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.”
God’s miracle agent is the Spirit of God, the Holy Spirit. God spoke, and His Spirit made it to happen. God performed so many miracles by the hands of Moses. Moses was so close to God, and the anointing on him was so great, that God took part of that anointing and distributed it to 70 people, and Moses was still anointed. So the secret of the miracle-working power of God that you see in Moses is the anointing of the Holy Spirit. Joseph succeeded in Egypt because he was so in tune with God.
The Bible tells us that the Spirit of God was upon Joseph. David was a successful king. Why? Because of the Holy Spirit. He said “Take not thy Holy Spirit from me”. Elijah operated in the miraculous. The Bible talks about the spirit and power of Elijah. The Bible says it is the anointing that breaks the yoke.
So, the person of the Holy Spirit is the agent of the miracle-working power of God. When the angel went to Mary and told her she would have a child, she asked, “How is that possible since I am a virgin?”
The angel said “The power of the Highest will overshadow you”. So the miraculous birth of Jesus Christ was done through the power of the Holy Ghost. He is the third person in the Godhead. Peter was filled with the Holy Spirit; Paul was filled with the Holy Spirit; and the apostles were filled with the Holy Spirit. So, anybody who wants to be in the regular flow of the miraculous touch of God must do certain things regularly, which I am going to highlight to you before we start praying now:
1. You must fast. Those who do not like fasting must know that there are certain battles they cannot overcome without fasting.
2. The Word of God: Bible reading, Bible memorization, and Bible meditation.
3. Purposeful prayers—not praying only when you get to church. Some people do not pray at home, only when they are in church. If you find out that you do not enjoy prayer, there is a problem somewhere. If you are always wanting to run away from places where there is prayer, you have a big problem.
4. Praises and worship. You praise and worship God whether or not you feel good about it.
5. Praying in the spirit. Once you have received the baptism of the Holy Ghost, you keep praying in the Spirit.
6. You must be a person of faith.
7. Holiness, which we have been discussing for weeks now. You have to release yourself to the Holy Ghost if you want to be at the centre of the miracle-working power of God.
1. Every power that has choked up my space, break away! in the name of Jesus.
2. Every repetition that should repeat itself in my life, break away! in the name of Jesus.
3. Handwriting of the serpent in my life: Your time is up; die! in the name of Jesus.
4. Every curse of “your helper will not remember you”, break! in the name of Jesus.
5. Great Physician, JESUS CHRIST, overshadow my life! in the name of Jesus.
6. Every serpent and rat in my dream, die! in the name of Jesus.
1. O God, arise, have mercy upon me! in the name of Jesus.
God bless you🙏
